The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Query on WBB 3 repitition ranges

    I dont understand how this is structured:

    The routine has been designed so that each week you will alternate the repetition range so that youíre working in all of the rep ranges that are used generally for hypertrophy and strength. For example, in week one youíll be alternating between 6 and 10 repetitions. In the second week, it is suggested that you use 8 and 12 repetitions. All sets are taken to failure except for the exercises that have an asterix placed in front of them.
    where 2x6,10 was listed I took this to mean that
    first set 6 reps, second set 10 reps

    is this correct ?
    I found it difficult to adjust to this on some exercises and I assume that it requires some descending set weight.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    great. - you can have a look at my journal if you want to see the results of my first attempt.

    Some exercises were good, others were poorly judged.

    So you need to work in parrallel rep ranges such as the weight that you can handle for 6 along with the weight that you can handle for 10 reps.

    I was concerned that perhaps slightly dropping the weight for the second set was incorrect, so I needed to check that before I continued, cheers Maki.

    The first two weeks you may not have the best workouts because you'll be trying to find your starting weight for each rep range posted.
    This is normal. After about the first month you should be able to have your weights in order.

    Remember next week you'll be using a 8 and 12 rep range.
